At the beginning of last month, China Middle School JMG organized its first Veterans Day Assembly to honor local veterans. Student leaders had the opportunity to introduce the veterans including Keith Morin (Navy), Bob Bennett (Army), Jim Isgro (Army) and Jesse Ridgeway (Coast Guard).
The veterans all spoke about their service experiences and offered insights about Bootcamp, traveling around the world, and the importance of developing everyday skills like communication and teamwork. They all spoke highly of their service and the critical need to give back to the community.
Many CMS Students helped make the recognition special by creating posters and cards to thank the veterans for their service. JMG hopes to make this an annual CMS tradition.
